Firstly thank you for your immense help .
Whigh is the most scenic train from lucerne to interlaken?
Can we buy tickets on the day of travel or need to reserve in advance?
Any direct train from Lucerne to Interlaken runs on the scenic Golden Pass line. You can buy tickets on the day or online in advance. You don't need tickets if you have a rail pass like the Swiss Travel Pass or Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland.
Should they specify "via Meiringen" to get the correct routing?

No, it's not necessary if travelling from Luzern, as the Golden Pass route is also the fastest. From Zürich it is necessary though, to avoid the fastest connections through Bern.
